Ryan Reynolds is voicing everyone’s favorite little Pokémon in the new upcoming live-action film: “Detective Pikachu.”

The film is set for a nationwide May 10, 2019 release starring Justice Smith as 21-year-old Tim Goodman, the son of a missing detective who discovers he, and he alone can communicate with Pikachu.



Together, Tim and Pikachu team up to investigate his father’s disappearance. Along the way, they run into other Pokémon favorites like Jigglypuff, Psyduck, Mr. Mime, Bulbasaur, and Charmander.

The film’s director is Rob Letterman, who also directed “Goosebumps” and the animated film “Monsters vs. Aliens.”

Set your reminders, folks—May 10th will be here before you know it.
